Hellboy investigates a rash of spontaneous human combustions in a Florida town unlike any supernatural phenomena he's seen before-and the fire has an appetite for Bureau agents.

    What places this one-shot over the top though is its choice to provide no easy answers, embodying an ongoing battle from which the B.P.R.D. cannot save us. Read Full Review

    Spontaneous combustion gets an explanation and Hellboy is right in the middle of it. This one-shot has the perfect eerie vibe and the visuals tell the story expertly. I'd love to return to Florida for more heat in the Sunshine state. Read Full Review

    Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1955 Burning Season is a superb representation of the unique entertainment and insight that can be found within the Hellboy Universe. Inspired by historical tragedies and their real-world locations that can be seen today, the story finds incredible heart in the pain of the past and the power of remembrance. Read Full Review

    The world of the paranormal is a large and varied field, add to that regional myths and legends that are less well known and modern conspiracies and unexplained phenomenon and the wealth of material for Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. to examine is generous to say the least. It's nice to be able to step off the main story lines and explore the odd specific phenomenon from time to time and when you add that Mignolaverse twist it means entertainment is guaranteed.

    Hellboy One-shot Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955 - Burning Season (featuring some terrific art by Paolo Rivera) is unusual in that there isn't a something for Hellboy to defeat, only survive. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed the setting of this story as we all know Florida has some deep dark history. The story has great pacing and was a fun read. The art didn't blow me away like the Krampus One-Shot last Christmas, but overall a good one and done.
